Data Concerto: 18 Ottobre 2019 - h 22.30
In parte sciamano, in parte seduttrice, Liza Colby è nata per diventare una Regina del Rock’n’Roll.
La sua musica è per peccaminose notti di sabato e per redentrici mattine di domenica. È musica straziante; è musica di liberazione sessuale; è musica per ciò che più conta. È The Liza Colby Sound. È la musica di cui abbiamo bisogno in questi tempi.
Immagina che i Led Zeppelin al Madison Square Garden incontrino James Brown all’Apollo. Immagina Tina Turner che si aggira sul palco come Iggy Pop con la voce che evoca Aretha Franklin e Steve Marriott di Humble Pie. Esagerazione? No, vieni a vedere la performance e ascolta il nuovo disco di Liza Colby Sound, DRAW. “Quando canto, voglio essere tosta, femminile e emanare sensualità”, dice l’artista con sede a New York City. “Voglio dare dei calci in faccia attraverso il rock’n’roll”.
The Liza Colby Sound is known for an aesthetic that harnesses the grit of garage rock, the anthemic power of classic arena rock, the sweat-soaked salvation of a soul revue, and the sneering defiance of punk rock. Liza’s vocals are boldly vulnerable, shaking the rafters and rattling your soul. LCS sound has toured throughout the East Coast, performing in venues such as Webster Hall, Bowery Electric, PNC Bank Arts Center, The Wellmont Theater, and Jones Beach. LCS has also performed to a packed house at the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles. To date, the rock n’ roll quartet has issued two EPs, previous releases include the well-received High Yellow (2011) and Live (2013).
The core of The Liza Colby Sound is Adam Roth guitar, Alec Morton bass, and C.P. Roth drums. December 2015, Adam passed away after a brave battle with cancer. LCS remerged with fiery psychedelic guitarist Tom McCaffrey (Gloria Gaynor and Liberty DeVitto) who played and toured on DRAW. The band is now playing with Jay Shepard (Mark Hudson (Aerosmith), Denny Laine (Wings), Corey Glover (Living Colour), Earl Slick (Bowie, Lennon)), bluesy fleet fingered guitarist as a full-fledged member.
The 4-song EP crackles with fiery musicality, muscular grooves, and moments of reflective soul-ballad beauty. The leadoff single, “My World,” explodes open with an iconic, instantly recognizable guitar figure. This future smash is a gritty and seductive pop-rock number that explores the expanse of female sexuality from dominant to submissive with relentless moxie. On the track, guitarist Adam Roth turns in solos that evoke honey dripping down on naked bodies. The simmering soul waltz “I Love You” conjures the longing of being desperately in love with someone who is going to leave and the cocksure “Cryin”.
The EP is a tribute to the tenacity of The Liza Colby Sound, and it also represents a brave new future. “The title ‘DRAW’ means it’s time to pull the trigger.” Liza says with graceful defiance. “We will Mach Schau.”
A brand new full album is expected to be released in January 2019
